Happy Halloween from all in room 11! Hope you have a lovely bank holiday weekend and week off for those of you who will be at home with the children. Ms. O'Shea will be enjoying some time off at home in beautiful West Cork! Zzzzzzzzz
Yummy monster cupcakes!
We have been learning about where Halloween came from and how Barm brack is an Irish tradition, so we decided to bring this yummy tradition into the classroom and have a taste!
News readers in the making!
This week we had such historic news to write, we decided to share with all you interested Mam's, Dad's, Grannies, Grandads, who ever is reading! Hurricane Ophelia really will go down in history for Ireland, we are lucky to live in a beautiful country where things like this don't come around too often. Glad to hear from the children you all kept safe during the bad weather. On the upside, who would have known we had such professional news readers in room 11? Check out these two!

Some more great news reading! Hopefully we will get around to recording all of the children reading their news :)
Thank you to everyone who has been bringing in real life objects like leaves, acorns, conkers etc. to help keep our autumn display looking smashing!
Brain breaks in Room 11!
We love brain breaks. Here is one we did last week!

This week instead of doing a sound we are doing all 5 vowels, which are super important as we find them in every single word!! Today we focused on the short sounds they make. We wrote some on the board and went to our books for independent work..
WANTED: A Fox
As some of you may know, we have been reading Fantasic Mr. Fox by Roald Dahl. Last week we did a fun writing activity linked to the book. We had to use clever, descriptive words to help the farmers find and hunt down the fox!
